Here’s a few shots of how the fence work is progressing. The fence needs a coat of primer and a top coat so it’ll be awhile before we actually get the fence up. In the meantime, here a bit on how I’m putting things together.
I used a giant jig to lay out the panels and screwed the rails and post together. Then used my track saw to make short work of trimming the fence to size.
I also got lots of sawing practice timing the rails and used my block plane, of course, to trim the rails to fit the mortises.
I had the contractor install the fence posts so that my arms wouldn’t fall off installing the 16 posts needed to construct the fence. Then, I used my power router to make mortises/dados for the rails.
Gratuitous flower shot with fence pole mortise in the back ground.
